I am looking into buying the condor supreme. it looks like a great O/U, and it looks well for what it is worth. I see a few individuals on the site, and dislike it, but I also see many that like it. i have researched it on the net, and i have found that many people are very happy with the gun, and its price. This would be my first O/U for upland. i just wanted to get some input on the people that really enjoyed it. How do you like it? How does it shoot? ect. also this may seem dumb on my part, but what is selective triggering? Thanks

I have a 12 gauge Condor Supreme with 28" barrels and I love it. I've had it for almost two months and have put almost 400 rounds through it. The Condor that I have has great looking wood. It even impressed my friend that shoots Brownings. He can't believe that this $349 gun has wood that looks almost as nice as his $2600 o/u. Regarding selective triggers, that means that you can choose which barrel you want to fire first, top or bottom. I'm already thinking of getting another Condor Supreme in a 20 gauge for upland hunting. I'll take this 12 gauge into the blind with me next duck hunting season.

Thanks for the reply. Sounds like you enjoy your gun a lot. I have finally made my decision in buying a affordable O/U. I will buy the stoeger condor supreme in about the beginning of august, I canít wait! I have another question about auto ejectors. I know what auto ejectors are, but my question is when you crack the receiver does the gun always eject the shells, even if they are not shot. for instance just say you are walking a field, and a bird comes up. You take it down in one shot. Well you need to reload, so when you open the receiver, do the fired shell and the unfired both eject, or does the fired one only eject. Thanks

i thought i replied to this post but i guess it got lost in the nether reigons of the net?
save your money and get a nice used piece for around 700-900$ i have a condor i picked up for 289 at dicks. as a field gun its ok, i guess, for 300$ i realy dont give a crap about it, i poke threw the bushes break ice and use it for a boat ore now and then but, i will not count on it not to fail (see condor back to its old tricks) i always take at least one spare shot gun some times 2 and my trusty glock 19 (just in case) ive taken apart my condor perty far and im not at all impressed with the quality of the internal parts at all. they are all rough cast with no polished or machined mating surfices, that makes for an unreliable weapon. also the fit and finish of the piece is poor. it has kind of nice wood (most likely pilfered from the rain forest since stogers are made in Brazil) and the blueing is poor. my gun is starting to rust after only about 8 mos and 7-800 rounds. if you insist on getting one i would go for the base model the auto ejectors are nice to have, if your busting a flock of ducks or blasting away at doves but i like to police all my brass when i can, and i hate to bend over. on a good quality gun only the fired shell will eject, on the condor supreme, im not shure. for 300$ its hard to go wrong and if it does take a crap on you take the stock off and see if the saftey retaining spring screw is loose. my next shot gun is going to be a used ruger red label 20ga with an english stock that is if i dont blow the mad money on a nice .357 smile.gif

I happen to like my Condor Supreme. The only Problem I had was my fault. I did not clean it well enough. It is reliable and responsive. I can't complain.
